About This Course
“Adobe Photoshop is the most powerful image-editing program in the world, and this course can teach you how to use its amazing (and fun) capabilities more fully in your work, ministry, and daily life. Students will apply their skills by doing non-textbook PS (problem solver) projects that permit more real-life creative application and result in works that can be included in digital portfolios submitted later in the course.”
Instructors and Texts
Code / Name: CADM 231 – Digital Imaging (3 credits)
Catalog Description: A foundational course in Adobe Photoshop. Students will explore the ethics related to image use and manipulation, and will learn how to input, manipulate, enhance, and output raster- and vector-based images in Photoshop.
Required Text(s): Please use the online campus bookstore to locate required textbooks for the course. Make sure that you search using the correct course code and look for the course with the “OL” suffix in the drop-down list. (See Textbook Ordering Help.)
The textbook will be needed by the first day of class, so order early. If buying/renting a used copy, make sure you also get a copy of the original downloadable Lesson Files for the book. (Once the first user uses the book’s access code to set up a user email and password to download them, only that user can re-use that access code.)
Required Software and Equipment: Students will be required to subscribe to, or have access to a subscription for, the most recent version of Adobe Photoshop for use during the entire course. It must be downloaded, installed, and ready to use by the first day of class. (Students taking the course while on/near the Maranatha campus may use the campus subscription on the computers in DC113.) Please contact the instructor with any questions.
Students also need sufficient file-storage space (on a USB thumb drive or the hard drive of their own personal computer) for storage of lesson files and course work (4 GB recommended, although less might be used).
